ChronoMate (altrenogest), facilitates synchronization of estrus in sexually mature gilts that have had at least one estrous cycle. This allows farm managers to more accurately control the critical breeding and farrowing schedule for gilts, which maximizes the flow of uniform pigs throughout the system.

For synchronization of estrus in sexually mature gilts that have had at least one estrous cycle. Treatment with ChronoMate results in estrus (standing heat) 4 to 9 days after completion of the 14-day treatment period.
Underfeeding of ChronoMate may lead to the occurrence of cystic follicles. A small percentage (less than 5%) of treated gilts may exhibit estrus (standing heat) during the 14-day treatment period. Gilts nearing estrus at the start of the 14-day treatment period may express estrus early in that period.
Do not use: In gilts having a previous or current history of uterine inflammation (i.e., acute, subacute or chronic endometritis).
Keep this and all medication out of the reach of children. Avoid skin contact. Wear vinyl, neoprene or nitrile protective gloves when handling this product. Do not use latex gloves. Pregnant women or women who suspect they are pregnant should not handle ChronoMate (altrenogest) Solution. Women of childbearing age should exercise extreme caution when handling this product.

While wearing protective gloves, remove shipping cap and seal; replace with enclosed plastic dispensing cap. Remove cover from bottle dispensing tip and connect luer lock syringe (without needle). Draw out appropriate volume of ChronoMate. (Note: Do not remove syringe while bottle is inverted as spillage may result.) Detach syringe and replace cover on bottle dispensing tip to prevent leakage. Administer 6.8 mL (15 mg altrenogest) per gilt once daily for 14 consecutive days. Treat gilts on an individual animal basis by top-dressing ChronoMate on a portion of each gilt's daily feed allowance. To produce the desired synchronization of estrus in a group of gilts, treat all of the gilts daily for the same 14-day period. Excessive use of a syringe may cause the syringe to stick; therefore, replace syringe as necessary.
Store at or below room temperature, 77°F. Close tightly.
This medicine is used in gilts to synchronize estrus for planned breeding.
